The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai on Sunday announced that it has removed the mandatory seven-day home quarantine and RT-PCR on arrival for international passengers arriving from UAE including Dubai.
However, there is no relaxation for those who are arriving from the other ‘At-Risk’ countries.
The latest orders issued by the Municipal Corporation stated;
A 7-days Home quarantine and on arrival RT-PCR test was made mandatory for such passengers. These directives are now revised as below;
- No special SOPs henceforth will be applicable for passengers coming from United Arab Emirates (UAE) including Dubai
- Guidelines applicable to international travelers arriving from “Countries other than countries “At-Risk” will be made applicable to travelers arriving from including United Arab Emirates (UAE) including Dubai.
These directions will be enforced with effect from midnight 17th January 2022.
It is worth mentioning that earlier this month the BMC has announced new rules for international passengers arriving from UAE and ‘At-Risk’ countries and said that all passengers will have to undergo a mandatory rapid RT-PCR test on arrival.
